Please add Franceschetto Cybo (d. 1519) and Maddalena de' Medici

Maddalena de' Medici daughter of Lorenzo Medici (and sister of Pope Leo X) married Franceschetto Cybo illegitimate son of Pope Innocent VIII. There are profiles for Lorenzo Medici, Leo X, and Innocent VII but not Maddalena or Franceschetto.

There is also no profile for Innocent VIII's daughter Teodorina Cybo and all of these profiles could use improvement.

It would be nice to tie in Bindo Altoviti also.

Beyond the scope of my meagre Italian, but for any takers, rather than the unsourced Wikipedia page, it may be better to use Petrucci's article on Franceschetto in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani - Volume 25 (1981) (on-line here) with therein cited sources. For Maddalena, the Wikipedia page above has sources for further follow-up, and the German version of the same has a fairly extensive bibliography.

Thanks, and to that point, I was trying to be polite when I said that Lorenzo Medici's profile "could use improvement," as it obviously does not meet standards for pre-1500 profiles simply stating that he "needs no introduction" and cites to Wikipedia.

While these are all extremely notable and well-documented persons, there should be some introduction and citation to better sources, but this profile started life as a 2014 gedcom import. Hopefully a pre-1500 euroaristo volunteer can add some bones to this skeleton.

Franceschetto and Maddalena's relation is already attested in Innocent VIII's profile though so as an initial matter getting that connection in the tree (with minimally adequate Wikitree sourcing) would be nice.
